I am hosting my Web site with Yahoo! small business services. I need
to get a few Perl modules installed that use compiled C code. I don't
have shell access, however, so I'm having a real hard time. I tried
the suggestion at . The problem is that Yahoo! has done things to
cripple Perl-based CGI scripts, preventing that tact from working.
Since that didn't work, I tried to figure out what OS and hardware
architecture the Web server is running with the hopes that I could
find a pre-compiled binary version of the Perl modules I need. To
this end, I ran this script on the server:
use POSIX "uname";
my ($sysname, $nodename, $release, $version, $machine ) = uname;
print "Content-type: text/plain\n\n";
print "System = $sysname\n";
print "Hostname = $nodename\n";
print "OS Release = $release\n";
print "OS Version = $version\n";
print "Machine Type = $machine\n";
(Using `uname -a` didn't work for similar reasons as above.) This
produced the following output:
System = FreeBSD
Hostname = travisspencer.com
OS Release = 4.11-YAHOO-20061130
OS Version = FreeBSD 4.11-YAHOO-20061130 #0:
Machine Type = i386
From this, I figured that Yahoo! was running FreeBSD 4.11 on an i386
machine. So, I went to
and downloaded the necessary modules. I unpacked and uploaded the
contents, but when I tried to import the module, I got this error:
Can't load '/blog-mt/extlib/auto/Digest/SHA1/SHA1.so' for module
Digest::SHA1: Cannot execute objects on /p12/m/b28
at /foo/test.cgi line 5
Compilation failed in require at /foo/test.cgi line 5.
So, the dynamically loaded library can't be imported it seems but the
Perl module I uploaded is found in my search path.
Any ideas on how I might get this working?
